Inconsistency, Asymmetry, and Non-Locality A Philosophical Investigation of Classical Electrodynamics


Electrodynamics has largely been ignored by philosophers of science due to what Mathias Frisch says is a mistaken view that it is conceptually unproblematic. Part of the goal of this book is to show that classical physics, while successful in describing phenomena, has some very interesting conceptual problems worth discussing. The other goal of the book is to argue that the theory electrodynamics, a core theory of modern physics and one that's widely held, leaves out some important aspects of scientific theorizing, namely that the notion that consistency is over-valued, and that an inconsistent theory can still be successful.
